“It’s one part snow-bound motor-cross and 20 parts roller derby”  - E. Dan Smith

On saturday the Nike Snowboard Derby was a ProAm boardercross competition with $75,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs.  Sunday’s Supercross challenge was the first “team” boardercross with $125,000 for the teams that could push, shove and ride to the finish-line.
